dear friend

dear friend,

when i met you a year or two ago, i had no idea what i was in for. you were an energetic wee one that knew more about tsf than most the leaders and took the heart of the court by storm. as well as the court members by force. you were pure energy, and a bubbly smile that became, has become, a pure pleasure to be around (even if only on icq). i admit that initially i was a bit leery. there was the age (at least a 10 year difference), the incredible amount of bubbly energy that put me to shame (and that's saying something!), and my own preoccupation with the many activities i was involved in at the time (we were both a bit nuts, right?); but you quickly over came all of that.

you have been a source of inspiration, a place of support, a balanced view in the madness of biases, a source of comfort and understanding even when no one else got it. despite a huge age gap, despite never having met, despite being in two different countries, despite all the things that separate us and make us so different (or maybe because of them?), i am very honored to be able to call you friend. you are one of the rare women who accepts even if you don't understand or agree. you are one of the rare people who seems to value relationship over ego and pride, who allows that we do not have to think the same. you are one of the rare people who looks at the words and doesn't jump to conclusions about the meaning, but clarifies. and even then, you are willing to allow that just maybe the other person had a bad day and won't hold it against them.

i so look forward to getting to know you, working with you, and developing this friendship we have as we work on our new project. as much as i value people and friendships, it has always seemed hard for me to hold onto female friendships. i hope to never lose yours.

perhaps you don't feel this connection between us the way i do. and that's ok (and please don't let this letter freak you out either). but you are a very special lady in my life. your support (and editing, hehe) has been invaluable. i look forward to talking with you and sharing with you.

thank you for being my friend. my life would be so much poorer without being touched by yours. i can only hope that i manage to give to you at least as much as you give to me. thank you for everything.
